Crafty Shower: Wooden Spool Photo Holders

Wedding showers are a great place to show off childhood pictures of the bride and groom.  Luckily for new sister-in-law B, my brother was THE CUTEST KID EVER!! 

While searching for ideas for our crafty-themed shower, I turned to Pinterest and found lots of great ideas, including one that uses spools as photo holders.  So easy, people!!  Just cut a wooden dowel down to size and slap on some cute paper and a photo. 

Next to a blue mason jar with daisies and some metal knitting needles, the spool photo holders are a really cute display!  We did a picture of the groom on one side and the bride on the other side.

 I would recommend doing some sort of adhesive on the bottom, just to make sure the spools don't wobble around or fall.


  1. Cute cute cute!! Where did you find the turquoise mason jars? I need to buy 70 of them!

  2. Hey there!! I just added myself to your followers for support, and wanted to invite you to check out an awesome Modcloth giveaway I'm having!
